Food in Process: Spaghetti

One of my favorite childhood food is: spaghetti. I mean
who doesn't like to suck up the noodle strings and leaving
a messy snout behind? This Italian indulgent is so versatile
such as the classical bolognese and the creamy carbonara
sauce.

But my all time favorite is spaghetti in solid tomato sauce with
subtle herbs. And cheese on top! Some people like to
 add the sauce at the very end and some like to mix the sauce
while they cook the spaghetti. I prefer the last one. I also
like to eat spaghetti with lots of pepper... mhmm

This post sure is packed with the word spaghetti. Maybe because
I'm hungry at the moment. Anyway! My simple way of making
spaghetti with tomato sauce, shrimps and cheese!


Da Recipe 4 servings: 1 pack spaghetti, 1 jar/can your favorite tomato sauce, 1 pack/can diced tomatoes, 1 tsp. chopped garlic, 250gr shrimps1 diced onion, grated cheese, salt & pepper, soy sauce + 1 tbsp. starch (shrimp seasoning) 

Removing veins and peeling off skin is pain in the butt to do. 


Da Steps: 

1. Season the shrimps by adding pepper, soy sauce and starch. Mix well and set aside. 

2. Cook the spaghetti according to the packaging. Let it drain in a pasta strainer. 

3. Heat pan with oil and add the chopped garlic and onions. Stir in diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and bring it to the boil.
4. Reduce heat and let it cook for 5 minutes. Keep stirring! 
5. Before adding the shrimps, rinse and pat-dry the shrimps first. Add to the sauce. 

6. Add the spaghetti and stir and mix well until all sauces are combined. 
7. Add salt and pepper to adjust the flavor. 

8. Serve it in a deep plate. Sprinkle grated cheese on top. And enjoy!

Good luck!

  6. Man, this is one dangerous post haha. Spaghetti has always been one of my top choices, I loved it so much and I still do now. However, I don't remember when was the last time I ate pasta... I'm too afraid of their calories ^^;; I used to eat homemade spaghetti or other pastas, really, by mixing minced beef and readily bought bolognese (or others) sauce from the market. Tomato sauce is simple but yea it works great :) I used soy sauce once too,lol crazy experiment

    and thank you for a good recipe! I'm drooling big time xD
